#OnThisDay 1900 Irish men of John MacBride’s Irish Transvaal Brigade fought alongside the Boers to defeat the British army (including some Irish Regiments, e.g. Connaught Rangers & Dublin Fusiliers) at the Battle of Spion Kop during the Second Boer War.
I'm David, I'm from Ireland. I am an avid fan of history. I have my B.A. in History, my M.A. in Military History and Strategic Studies,a Post Qualification Diploma in History and I've been teaching History for five years now.
I wanted to create a podcast that examines, in great detail, major Irish battles and battles allover the world in various wars that Irish people played a significant part in.
Hope you enjoy.
